Let's be honest. Maternal West End theatregoers, in particular, caused an uproar and boycotted the show. While the presence of a nude year-old on stage is a striking image, and understandably so, it is in no way gratuitous. Ephram is a jack of all trades and enjoys attending theatre, classical music concerts and the opera.

EQUUS star Ethan Kai says he knows West End audiences will be "shocked" by the nudity in the hit play -- but insists the notorious naked scene is central to the show. The former Emmerdale actor, left, plays teenager Alan Strang, who is examined by a psychiatrist after blinding a group of horses. That production made headlines around the world when Radcliffe appeared naked on stage. Kai said he knows the five-minute scene will still be a talking point. He added: "I think living in Britain nudity isn't something we're particularly comfortable with so people will always have those kind of responses to it whether it's awkward laughter or being shocked so people will talk about that and that's fine.
You just go for it! It was not particularly stressful. It was funnier more than anything else. I have to forge my own path.
Daniel Radcliffe did famously, and to critical acclaim, portray the role of Alan Strang, and yes, this requires nudity. But at no point, and I want to make this really clear, does Alan have sex with a horse. Just saying. It was shockingly controversial when first performed in , due in no small part to its graphic descriptions of a confused sexuality and its paganistic rejection of modern society, not to mention its famously disturbing and violent finale.
